What We Believe
As Baptists we believe that Jesus spoke through the word of God, which is our only rule of faith and practice. Jesus is the son of God who died for us and rose again, setting us free. We admit that we often fail to live up to the reality of this statement.
It is one of the reasons that we named our community Graceworks. We realize that unless grace is working in us, we only make the mistakes uglier and wrongly claim the victories for ourselves.
– Grace works in us through the word of God. We attempt to understand the word of God through the guidance of the Holy Spirit. The word of God, the Bible, liberates us to forgive and be forgiven. The Bible instructs us to remember him around bread and wine (communion). We celebrate new life in Christ through public baptisms.
– Grace works through us to those around us. We do not naturally serve others, we would much rather be served. Grace allows us to see the needs of others and to respond.
– Grace works in the community to give us unity
We are very diverse community, yet unified by Jesus through His grace working in us. Grace working in us, through us and creating unity is our goal. We are on a journey and we hope you will join us on this journey.
